Arizona Art Alliance – “A Group Effort”

The Arizona Art Alliance – an organization comprised of thousands of artists from more than 20 Arizona-based art groups – is sponsoring an exhibit of nearly 100 works of art entitled “A Group Effort – Creations From Different Points of View”. I feel very fortunate that one of my paintings – “The Bandit of Cranberry Lake” – was juried into this highly selective exhibit. The exhibit will feature a wide variety of mediums including: 2-D and 3-D artworks, jewelry, glass and sculpture. The exhibit was juried by the Chandler Arts Commission.

The Bandit of Cranberry Lake

The exhibit will be held in two gallery locations in Chandler, Arizona: The Vision Gallery and the Chandler Center for the Arts. The show dates are July 8 through August 27 with the Artist’s Reception scheduled for Saturday, July 9 from 1 to 4 p.m. at both locations.

My work will be exhibited at the gallery of the Chandler Center for the Arts, 250 North Arizona Avenue, Chandler, AZ (on the northwest corner of Chandler Blvd and Arizona Avenue). I would like to invite everyone to attend. It’s a great way to beat the summer heat and enjoy some of the finest art Arizona has to offer.

West Valley Arts Council Exhibit

The West Valley Arts Council (WVAC) recently sponsored the “Tails, Scales & Feathers” exhibit featuring “animalistic” art of any medium showcasing all types of animals with tails, scales, feathers, claws, paws, etc. I was fortunate to have two of my paintings (After the Hunt, and Love in the Desert) juried into the show which opened on June 2 with an artist’s reception at the WVAC gallery in Surprise. The exhibit runs through July 14 and is a perfect way to support the arts in the West Valley. So, please drop by and take a cool stroll through the gallery and enjoy the wonderful artwork.

WVAC in Surprise, Arizona is the only regional organization that focuses on all disciplines of the arts. It has been central to creating what is recognized as a “high quality of life” for West Valley residents, and is the only multi-disciplinary arts organization of its type and scope in the Valley.
